      3. Select a "wow" toy, such as a doll, soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal
      4. Fill your shoebox gift with other fun toys, hygiene items and school supplies (note: due to customs regulations do
          not include toothpaste and candy)

      5. Pray for the child who will receive your gift. Include a personal note and photo.

                                            Outreach Opportunities                                                    

  The WELL
  - During the following months, we will be collecting these items for the WELL.
                - November - stuffing mix and instant potatoes
 - Save your egg cartons for The WELL and put them on the shelves in the parlor. The WELL receives flats of eggs
  and they need to be broken down to give to the clients.

 
Devers School
 
- Save your "Boxtops for Education" year round. Please place them in the mason jar on the shelves in the parlor.

  Lebanon Veterans' Hospital
  - Donate your old magazines. Please place them on the pew across from the elevator, beside the recycle box - not in
  the box. Our sexton, Cindy Miller, will deliver them.

  Coupons for Our Troops
  - This is an ongoing mission/outreach project for Faith. Just bring the manufacturer coupon books from the newspaper
  to church and put them in the orange basket in the parlor. They will be sent to commissaries for out troops.
  Manufacturers will honor coupons up to six months past the expiration date. You can cut them out or bring the full
  book. What an easy way to support our men/women in the military. Thank you for your support.
